The hard thing about writing Ruin and Atlas is their relations to the Occult. Mainly because it's very complex, much more than I actually write about or admit on here. Of course, people don't stay in a miserable place for no reason. And thinking about them has made me think more about my views on religion and how that also effects my writing, because obviously I will mentally focus on the worse aspects more than the good due to how religion personally effected me. But for Ruin and Atlas, there is a more complicated affection for their religion and the community that comes with it.

Like, the reason people stay in religion is because it has good aspects, like a community, a sense of familiarity, the ritual/schedule it brings. And being religious can bring a sense of comfort. Even the act of praying can be comforting for people

So basically I'm saying that yeah I post A LOT about the negatives of the Occult, but I do in fact think about the positives. Sometimes. Usually when I (personally/nonshared) write or think about Ruin and Atlas.

They're both very complex people, much more than I can give justice in my writing, which scares me. I fear I will not be able to bring out the emotions they feel, the mix of grief yet connection they have to their religion and beliefs. Even the feeling of desperation, or the feeling of hope, I fear I won't be able to accurately ever write that portrait

I personally also really connect with Ruin a lot, but tbf I put a lot of myself in him, if that makes sense. He reminds me of my younger self, I think, but purer in virtue. It's the inner confliction he has that I relate to, in a way. The wanting to please your family but being unsure if you actually believe in the same thing, and then grasping at straws to find some form of hope or faith and ending up falling into desperation due to the guilt of the truth. And then the shame of "proving" the negative aspects /traits people tell you that only sinners have or only "bad" groups of pe

THANK YOUUU, I worked very hard to make the lighting coherent, especially with the multiple colors going on and the saturation of said colors uwu!

Here are some notes of my thought process

 
Forgot to add that the overlay layer is on 10% and was added to make the blues and green pop more (the blue on the overlay layer is a sky/white-blue, and both the blue and yellow made the colors seem more saturated/cohesive imo, as well as was only applied in specific areas and not the whole drawing, just simple color theory stuff)

Additionally with the blue background and base for the colors being color diversity, I didn't want the drawing to be too over taken by red or green.

I forgot to add that I was inspired by Jekyll/Hyde's canon final ascension card, which also decided on the color focus I chose



I also used my knowledge/technique I learned in painting class (as I do with a lot of my heavily-rendered drawings) and the base color for the subject was a dark blue with an airbrushed neon green and hot pink/red. After that, I "painted" on colors (using a low-opacity hard dip pen)

Originally I was going to do anime cell-shading, but I feared that the coloration and lighting wouldn't come out as I was wanting it to, as well as my anime shading technique isn't quite on par yet and I would need to practice more types/study that type of lighting before really trying it in a super dynamic lighting drawing. So, for now, I am sticking to my painter's style XD recently I've been wanting to try old anime and manga rendering techniques, such as Saint Seiya or Pokémon styles of coloring (water color based). Who knows when I will try that though XD

With the lineart, my choice to do the thick lineart instead of my thin lineart was because I wanted it to look "marker-y", and as well as I noticed recently that my thin lineart tends to warp facial feat

Atlas gives the vibes that he would step in if you were struggling to open a jar and also immediately struggle to open the jar

So my friends basically have decided that I look best in clothing that basically:

-Make me look like Weird Al
-Make me look like Adam Sandler
-Make me look like Sans the Skeleton (literally they chose an outfit for me that was one blue jacket away from me looking like Sans)

Or, as in the words of a friend of mine (much to my dismay and distraught): "A weird, white uncle"

Sure Apollo/Atlas may be Doomed and has learned helplessness but boy oh boy, isn't he just a sweet fellow!

Also update, Apollo's name is Atlas due to me not wanting him to be named after me anymore also I have Lore about Ruin's name but I'll share that at a different time @~@

 
Atlas is so funny because he needs to look in a mirror for once and actually say nice stuff about himself

I feel like Ruin wouldn't have celebrated his birthday before until Atlas and hahdnakdkma Atlas would make up a day and tell Ruin that they're celebrating and it's a very cute and fun thing

Only major thing I can think of ATM is concerning my own characters (Echo getting retconned, name changes to a few OCs, ect). Other than that, I can't think of anything

I need to go over his abilities as an angelic being but >v<

Also I love to compare him and Seis, it's very fun. I realized recently that they have quite a few unintentional parallels and interesting contrasts

Like, Seis is, in a very general/simplified definition, a demon king. While Francis is a, also simplified definition here, a mix between a prince and a servant. However, Seis isn't aware of himself until much later on in life, while Francis has known and ignored himself from a very young age

With Seis, Seis is unknowing of his parents, while Francis known his parents. Both come from separate occults as well, which is interesting to me. Francis is still very connected to the occult he originated, in terms of some of the ideals (additionally, it's interesting to think of how his father's abuse had effected him and his view of religion hmm!), and Seis has never known any specific religion. Even more so, Francis has a lot of trauma from being "controlled"/the concept of autonomy being taken away from him, while Seis has the problem of his grandfather accidentally giving Seis too much freedom/not enough boundaries or proper teaching in self control. Not that his grandfather doesn't care about him, but rather Sweet Gherkin's own past made him scared of accidentally being over-controlling of Seis, which caused him to do the reverse

I feel like if they were in an early 2000's anime, a lot of people would have made those edgy angel/demon fanart of them. By the gods, I need to make edgy angel/demon fanart of them XD

This probably sounds really dumb and simple XD but it's interesting to ME

RIP my mom, she just listened to me ramble about Undertale and Deltarune, as well as Spamton G. Spamton (best boy) and about what little is known about W. D. Gaster (as well as why he's important in Deltarune)

All she asked me was what Undertale is about XD

I went into detail XD
